Since I am drinking a hot cup of coffee with a bit of French Vanilla creamer and a few dashes of sugar, and that drinking coffee is most of the time a rarity for me I decided that I would join in on Virtual Coffee. I wish I could actually sit down with a cup of coffee at a coffee shop filled with the yummy aroma of coffee, welcoming walls and warm smiles of the workers in a quiet corner, and speak with so many of you.
If I really could sit and share a cup of coffee and conversation with you, I would show you this lovely new hair cut of mine that I received on Thursday by my lovely co-worker, and tell you it’s the best hair cut I have probably ever had and that I will keep the lovely Elena hunted down to cut my hair for the rest of my life and how my hair just feels lighter.
I would tell you that this last weekend was lovely – taking engagement photos of my little brother and his fiancee, running errands into the evening then trying a little homegrown, family operated BBQ place which was lovely. And that Sunday was absolutely beautiful outside, it was my favorite weather – the sky was sunny with a few, very few, scattered clouds, and a gentle warmth of being able to wear a light jacket or not. It was perfect! We got our “well, our cabinets are about empty so we. must. go. grocery. shopping.” grocery shopping done – so that was a relief! We came home, made some homemade yummy, yummy hummus (you have no.idea. how excited I am about this, nor how long I have wanted homemade hummus!), and some homemade spinach artichoke dip. So, Sunday I was spoiled by the hubby and the weather.
I would tell you that work just.plain.sucks. There isn’t a nicer way to put it. I wish there could be but there isn’t. Here it is in a nutshell – I’m required to work 48 hours in a work week but I don’t get paid unless I’m massaging. Last week I made a total of $60, no I’m not kidding– you do the math. The last couple of weeks have been this way, my days filled with being at work knowing I’m not getting paid. It begins to take a toll, a big one – then when your boss gets mad that you want to take a day off when you have no clients, that’s even more frustrating. With that being said, I’m looking to go out of my own again and be a business owner – not sure if many of you knew that, I owned a massage & wellness office in Colorado! – because its so much easier that way and there is a space perfect with lots of foot traffic…. so more news on that soon! I just have to get past my guilt of quitting my job silly I know, but that’s kind of how I am.
I would tell you Ryan is really wanting to move back to Colorado in 5 months when our lease is over. So, there is some bittersweet feelings towards that – there we have a ton more family, a bit less friends. Here we have a couple more friends and less family. Oh heavens, I’ll keep all of you informed on what our little life with be doing when we know more and decide.
I would also tell you we are taking a weekend get away!! YIPPPEEEE!!!! Colorado Baby! We are taking a quick Friday-Monday trip to go out for wedding #1 of the year, getting to see some family and have a nice, very short but nice get away!
And of course I would want to know all about what in the world is going on with you, so please! Fill me in! 😉
